by Conrad Glass

Conrad Glass is a policeman with the loneliest beat in the world: he patrols the remote island of Tristan da Cunha in the middle of the South Atlantic Ocean. No aircraft can land there and few ships pass his way. Much of his work concerns the conservation of some of the rarest species, including the Rockhopper penguin. Rockhopper Copper is the story of the Tristan islanders, told by a direct descendant of the first settler there 200 years ago.
